East Baton Rouge Bookmobile

East Baton Rouge, LA compass

VEHICLE OVERVIEW

News from the East Baton Rouge Parish Library Newsletter: A New ‘Library on Wheels’ We’ve got a new addition to our Bookmobile Fleet, and patrons have been participating in a viral campaign to help name it. Our new digital bookmobile is geared for adjustability to meet any audience need and is wired for video display and multiple computer laptop use. The entire bookmobile is 38 feet long and will allow us to teach computer classes and help patrons explore our Digital Library on the go! Maybe best of all – it blows soap bubbles as it zooms down the road! The Library’s bookmobiles make thousands of visits each year to pre-school and retirement facilities to serve those who can’t visit the Library branches on their own.
